Review by Kammi:
This movie has been handed a lot of bad press. The film it self is great! Really! I have been a fan since 1995 with the first movie which was done in anime style. Loved the whole franchise ever since. I have collected the whole franchise and still watch them to this day. The film is this fan’s newest must have and I am glad I got it. I enjoy this movie. The film should be embraced by the fans of Ghost in the Shell for it’s efforts to bring the complicated story to the live action science fiction genre. The sets and design as well as the special effects are all top notch. The film moves at a brisk pace and the action scenes are well done. The actors were all well cast and did a good job in bringing the characters to the big screen. There has been a lot of talk about comparing Ghost with Blade Runner. I consider Blade Runner my favorite movie of all time. I accept the comparison and can see it on several levels. What I see here is a future cult film. It is a shame the way this film was cast aside when released but that is what happened to Blade Runner. In the future we may see a Ghost in the Shell receive a higher score which it deserves. If you haven’t seen this film I recommend it highly.
